The Upcyclers

Dr Anna's super cute bunnies and carrots- which lucky bunnies get to have the two extras??



We pondered the general sensibleness of "upcycling", the practice of taking used items and rearranging them as a "something new" item, like Anna's completely "upcycled" dolls...

 


and another Anna's upcycled yummy shorts...
A most fantastic day it was: full of more delightful busking good hearted children, happy handmade-loving folk, busy craft fingers and more fiscally splendid for the orphans ... yay!

 

donated items made with love, enormous altruism and faith...


 

and a certain dose of cleverness...

 
Gratitude in abundance to the many good folk who made, shopped, smiled, and played.

Lovely, lovely pics Jo (FILCH!) - I love the one of everyone's handicrafting hands best. Such a gorgeous, fabulous and inspiring morning - I went home fairly busting with thoughts and ideas :). Hope your week is off to a lovely start xx
